Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with this question.

It would help if you were more specific about the type of abuse going on. In order to qualify for a civil restraining order, the verbal abuse would have to be threatening to your safety, threatening your peace, or constituting harassment. If the drug abuse led to the destruction of your personal property, that too would be a basis for abuse.
